French Breakfast Radish

French Breakfast Radish

This French heirloom, treasured for over a hundred years for its mildly sharp flavor and bi-color beauty, is tender, crisp and spicy to the palette. A novel radish, not so good with your morning coffee or tea, is treasured among salad gourmets as both flavorful and as a lovely garnish.

You may either shred a few as you would beets or carrots into your favored lettuce leaves, or serve it on the side as a decoration almost too cute to eat. Simply make small uneven cuts around the outside, place the radishes in ice water, and watch them open into floral shapes!

Storage and Cooking

To store, remove the greens and keep wrapped in plastic in your fridge for up to a week.

While this radish is rarely used for breakfast, it offers a good dose of vitamin C and works great thinly sliced on sandwiches or simply between two buttered slices of bread. As an added bonus, the greens may be boiled and added to your other greens, soups or stir fries.

Did you know?

Fruits and vegetables shipped from distant states and countries can spend as many as seven to fourteen days in transit before they arrive in the supermarket.


"There seem to be but three ways for a nation to acquire wealth. The first is by war, as the Romans did, in plundering their neighbors. This is robbery. The second by commerce, which is generally cheating. The third is by agriculture, the only honest way, wherein man receives a real increase of the seed thrown into the ground, in a kind of continual miracle, wrought by the hand of God in his favor, as reward for his innocent life and his virtuous industry."
~Benjamin Franklin
